What videos can be added to your Taplink

You can add videos posted on:

  • YouTube.
  • Vimeo.
  • TikTok.
  • Twitch.
  • Your hosting (videos in MP4, M3U8, or WebM formats).

You can't upload videos from your computer or phone to your Taplink.

You need a Pro or Business plan to be able to add videos. Switch to one of these paid plans if you haven't switched yet.

Add a Video block in your Taplink account:

  1. Tap Add block.
  2. Select Video.
  3. Paste a video link.
  4. Tap Save changes.

Awesome, now there is a video on the Taplink. This is what it looks like:

Add more videos in the same way if you need. Add a new Video block for each new video.

How to set a video thumbnail

You can set an image as a video thumbnail only if you add a video in the format MP4, M3U8, or WebM stored on your hosting.

A thumbnail image is displayed correctly if it has an aspect ratio of 16:9. The recommended size is 1020x574 pixels.

Add a video with a custom thumbnail:

  1. Tap Add block.
  2. Select Video.
  3. Paste the video file link.

How to enable autoplay

Enabled autoplay makes a video start playing as soon as a user gets to your Taplink. Autoplay is only possible when users view your Taplink from a computer.

Turn on autoplay:

  1. Tap a video.
  2. Turn on Autoplay on computer.
  3. Tap Save changes.


Note, the video may not start playing automatically when a user opens the Taplink. It depends on the browser they use. Autoplay is prohibited in some browsers. For example, in Google Chrome version 87.*** and later.

When you don't need the video on your page to start playing automatically anymore, turn off Autoplay on computer.

Hide controls

Hide controls removes the controls from the video preview. So, the preview looks neater. Compare a Vimeo video with displayed controls (1st screenshot), and the same Vimeo video with the hidden avatar, title, and author controls (2nd screenshot).

The removed controls depend on the site where the video is stored. Different sites use different media players. These media players are different in available controls and their adjustability.

Remove controls:

  1. Tap a video.
  2. Turn on Hide controls.
  3. Tap Save changes.

So controls are removed. Now the video block looks like this:

  • Show by days of the week. Specify the days of the week in which you want your video to be displayed. The video will be shown on these days each week.

You can link to the video in the navigation menu. Enable Set block name and give the block a name. After that, add a menu item for the video, read here how to do it.
